If you think of Oahu only as home to Honolulu’s glittering hotels, the island’s more natural side will surprise you. But leeward
Oahu carries you back to a sleepier, rural Hawaii. Frenetic Waikiki can be serene, once you experience it from the water.
And windward Oahu, has a pleasing small-town vibe, along with world-class beaches. When you're looking for an alternative
to Honolulu's bustle, check out Kailua. One visit and you'll be tempted to stay.
